Charles (Tutor in Northampton)
PGCE Geography and Economics 1988 University of Sussex
Information about Charles
I am passionate about all three A level subjects I have taught and have excellent subject knowledge in all three. A large part of my degree was in economic geography and I am currently an economics examiner for Cambridge International Examinations. It is very disappointing when you read an exam answer where the candidate clearly has a good understanding and knowledge but has not been given adequate guidance as to what an examiner is looking for.
I enjoy showing how economics and geography can explain the world around us which makes the subjects easier to understand and recall. I am confident that my many years experience can help students to fulfil their potential at A level.
Availability: I am available Monday evening, on a Tuesday and times at weekends that can be negotiated and most of the time through the school holidays
Willing to travel: 1 miles
Experience: I have recently taught A2 and AS level Economics in a variety of schools and am currently head of economics at a large secondary school. I am also an examiner for Cambridge International Examinations in economics, marking the data response and essays paper.
I have tutored students for AQA, Edexcel and OCR Economics AS and A2, both micro and macro economics, and AQA Geography A Level.
I have taught A level Geography or IB Geography for 25 years and been a head of department for 19. I was an A level Geography examiner for 7 years

Charles has just started teaching my son and we can already see my sons confidence return. I would like to come back and provide more feedback in 6 months time so I can give a better detailed response. But for now Im extremely happy with Charles approach and teaching methods.

Brilliant a level tuition for my son. Charles really knows his subject and how to explain it.
Mr. Charles has taken me from 0 to A over the course of three months. An extremely patient tutor, he has given many suggestions on how to improve my essays and data-based questions. No doubt this is one of the best economics tutors on tutorhunt. :)
Charles has been extremely helpful, fantastic tutor helped my son to get ready to his mocks exams. My son is hoping to have some more lessons with Charles again before his A levels next year ( economics and geography )thank you!
Great Tutor with a lot of experience on CIE exams. I personally recommend him to anyone who wishes a top preparation for an Economics A-Level
Very professional tutor
Charles was a good tutor - he helped our daughter turn her economics around from a D/E to a B in her A level (wasn`t far off an A!) We would definitely recommend him.
Charles has been an excellent tutor for our son for the last year. Our sons A level grades in Economics and Geography are excellent and this us down to our sons hard work and Charles`s lessons. He is punctual, flexible and our son has enjoyed his lessons. I would highly recommend Charles to anyone.
Charles taught my son for 1 academic year in a Economics and some Geography. We have had my son`s A level results today which are excellent in both of these subjects. I believe that these excellent results are due to a combination of my son` s hard work and the excellent tuition that he has had from Charles. I would highly recommend him to anyone and will probably ask for his help again when my daughter does her A levels. Charles was always punctual, very flexible and my son enjoyed his lessons.
Charles quickly established the areas my daughter needed help with. He gave her excellent and relevant hand outs and had already selected some topical news stories in the newspaper for discussion. The lesson was professional and interesting - just what we had hoped for.
Chalres responded to our request quickly and came to spend an hour with us planning how he may be able to help our son through his A2`s, (he did not charge for this visit). My son has now had one full lesson with Charles which he found very helpful.
